The Opposition says it hopes a successful prosecution will result from news that two persons have been charged with the April murders of four people including three schoolboys, in Monymusk, Clarendon. 

The heinous execution style killings shocked the nation. 

Yesterday, the police disclosed that charges have been brought against 27-year-old Jermaine Turner and his sister, 21-year-old Sabrina Corrier, a barmaid, both of Canaan Heights in Clarendon. 

In a statement, Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Derrick Smith, said there has been every indication that the police have been zealous and resolute in pursuing the perpetrator or perpetrators of the gruesome killings.

He says the Opposition is pleased with the reported breakthrough and hopes that a successful prosecution will result.

Smith maintains that the case must be treated as a crime of example.

Head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, says the brother, who was pointed out in an identification parade, has been charged with four counts of murder.

Turner was reportedly found in possession of a cellular phone stolen from one of the victims. 

The policeman says the sister was charged with accessory to murder and receiving stolen property.

She was also reportedly found in possession of a cell phone stolen from one of the victims.
